Keys Mom Urania Lot Charged With Beating Son With a Hammer Over a Sandwich
|via Monroe County Sheriff's Office|
Monroe County Sheriff's deputies were called to Lot's mobile home on Stock Island -- the island just east of Key West -- around 11 a.m. on Monday.
Lot's son, Julio, was sitting on the front porch nursing a sore arm and battered head. He told the cops he and his mom "had been arguing over a sandwich."
When police interviewed Lot and her granddaughter, who'd watched the fight, both said that her son had been "belligerent" about taking his snack-time to another room. Lot allegedly hit him on the arm with the hammer, punched him in the head and bit his wrist.
"Urania was angry at Julio because he was eating a sandwich in the living room against her wishes," sheriff's deputies wrote in an arrest report. "She explained that Julio was verbally abusive and refused her requests to eat the sandwich at the table."
Lot faces one felony count of aggravated battery.
